dc.description.abstract The purpose of this paper was to create a program that would benefit the elderly members of the Logan County, Ohio community By recognizing that multiple ailments contribute to multiple medication usage, I feel that it is necessary to educate and empower the residents of the community regarding the implications of consuming multiple medications. Polypharmacy Education and Awareness for the Community is a program that has been designed to help older adults and physicians recognize some issues that must be addressed when taking and prescribing more than one medication per person.Following the completion of my Social Work Practicum, this proposal idea will be submitted to the Vice-President of Hospital Operations at Mary Rutan Hospital in Bellefontaine, Ohio, with the hope that it will indeed be integrated into the daily functioning of the hospital.
